(My blogging break is nearly done. I'll be back to a regular posting schedule in August but today I have a a guest post over at Missional Women.)

If you know me personally, you know summer is my least favorite time of year. All the things I love about living in Orlando—al fresco dining, a great parks district, outdoor movies, long walks—lose their luster in the Florida heat. Summer leaves me dreaming of chilly Winter days, oversized lattes, and snow-capped mountains. And all this longing for a climate out of my grasp can leave me a bit blue. It's a bit like reverse Seasonal Affective Disorder.

Still, everywhere I look on the internet these days I notice people bemoaning the end of summer. While children may already be preparing to return to school, summer is not nearly over. The Labor Day holiday is over a month away and the first day of Fall isn't until September 22. While the chill in the air might start to return to most of the country much sooner than it does here (I'll count myself exceedingly blessed if the heat has diminished at all by October) there's still a lot of summer left to enjoy.

If you haven't made the most of summer yet or are concerned about the remaining days ticking away, why don't you evaluate what is left of this season? For some practical tips to maximize what you're already doing and be missional during the remaining days of summer keep reading over at Missional Women>>>>>
